Product safety — more California Proposition 65 notices issued

Proposition 65 litigants John Moore, the Center for Environmental Health and Russell Brimer issued 14 new "60-day" notices in February, alleging that brands and retailers sold tote/duffel bags (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3), backpacks (Notice 1), laptop bags (Notice 1), luggage tags (Notice 1; Notice 2), footwear (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4), belts (Notice 1) and jewelry (Notice 1; Notice 2) in California that contained lead, cadmium and phthalates in violation of Prop 65. The notices serve as intent to bring a lawsuit against the recipients alleging that the products sold in California contain certain chemicals in violation of a California law known as Proposition 65. For more information on Prop 65, please go to the Prop 65 page on the TGA website or contact TGA's Nate Herman at 703-797-9062.
